Top 10 Scariest Movies to Watch on Halloween-2016 edition


Do you like watching scary movies? By that, we don’t just mean trashy horror movies with blood and insides splashing all around, but also movies that bring you to the edge of your seat and the thought of them makes you uncomfortable every time you have to go to the bathroom at night. As you probably know, Halloween is the best and scariest day of the year to watch this kind of movies and the adrenaline you get from is definitely worth it. gp-scarymovies1 We’ll discuss top ten of the scariest movies that you should watch this Samhain (Hallows Eve) and it’s up to you to decide if you’re ready to expose yourself to so much terror and fright in the night when shadows roam free.

Halloween 2014


I'm a little late on this post but I'd love to share with you my 2014 Halloween experience. As you saw from my previous post, I announced I would be dressing up as a Gryffindor student (which I did, but not til later at night.) At work we were allowed to dress up and participate in a Halloween contest - I ended up going as an Attack on Titan slayer; Part of the Scout Regiment. I was happy to represent my 'wings of freedom'!

I was a titan slayer at work today. #AttackOnTitan #Scout #Halloween

Tuesday Finds – My Halloween Costume Ideas


Halloween is just a few days away! Are any of you last minute costume buyers/makers? I know I am... It took me a while to decide on what I wanted to dress up as this year. I want to share through a list of ideas I had at the very beginning and what I decided to dress up as in the end. I didn't want to go buy anything that was too expensive so I decided to look for alternatives - I looked inside my closet. I already had a few things I could have easily dressed up as.  

Lydia of Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice! I loved it as a kid and I still it as an adult. Lydia is one of my favorite characters and I can see this as an easy costume. Not the red outfit version, but the version of her in very dark clothing with her camera. It could be pulled off if I can manage to mimic her hair and wear pale + dark make up. This was just an option though as I was watching Beetlejuice.

ATX: Big Top Candy Shop


October really is one of my favorite months! The weather is beautiful (even in Texas), getting to visit a few local pumpkin patches and engulfing a lot of my favorite sweets. I try not to get a lot of candy, but once October hits it feels like it's a must to celebrate the October-mood. I also feel the same way with horror flicks - Once October hits, I'm down to watch all the scary movies I can! The other night, my friend and I  had a sudden craving for candy. One of our favorite places to go in Austin is Big Top Candy Shop in the South Congress areaIt never fails that I get a little too excited and start packing my candy bag. $10 later, I was leaving their shop very satisfied with my fat-bag filled with goodies. atx-btcs

Halloween MakeUp Tips


Here’s a Halloween pro tip that everyone should know: You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get the perfect costume. Heck, sometimes when you go simple, the end result is even more amazing than when you buy a costume off the rack. bc-elsa-01

Need proof? Makeup artist Elsa Rhae made waves earlier this year when the Huffington Post ran an article on the intricate characters she had transformed herself into using simple costume makeup and a few items from her regular makeup collection.
